Event Details

Elizabeth Petuchowski grew up as a young Jewish girl in Germany amidst the rise of Nazism and mandatory antisemitism. She witnessed Hitler coming to power in the 1930s as a schoolgirl in Germany and experienced the outbreak of World War II in September 1939 from England where she and her immediate family had fled. Elizabeth resumed her studies and attended university in England during the WWII years before immigrating to America.

Elizabeth will share photographs from her life’s journey, talk about her experience living through these historical events, reflect on the effects these universally known events had on her life, and read from her memoir, Where From and Where To: One of the Last Self-Told German Jewish Life Stories. Robin Judd, Associate Professor in The OSU Department of History with expertise in Jewish History and Immigration History, will facilitate the conversation. This event is organized by Bexley Public Library and Gramercy Books.
